 Dwight Gooden remains a terribly sad story.

the way its going MLB will find its platform to promote its product and stars will grow smaller as its core baby-boomer fans age and die off.

kids don't have the time or inclination or attention span to continually watch a 3 1/2 hr game

Promotion is great, but IMO MLB has to find a way to get more baseball into the game.

HRs and Ks are great within reason, but guys going 1st to 3rd and maybe getting gunned out by the RFer with a cannon is better.

A DP has more than 2X the entertainment value of 2 ks.

I might get rid of the shift, (or limit its use) and it would probably lead to more hits, more runs more possibility for action.

put more baseball back into the game.


I remember a Star Trek Deep Space Nine episode where it was revealed that baseball was a dead sport on earth and nobody played it anymore. And moreover most people didn't even remember it.

Hey, the Sox played a pretty decent game against the Dodgers.

Some timely hitting. Good pitching.

Andrew Cashner, now pitching for the Red Sox.

His Fenway ERA is terrible, but only two games worth. His record this year is pretty good, especially given that he was pitching for the O's.

Sox game got cancelled.

They're airing some Little League game, instead.

Sale's season of suck continues.

It seems he's lost his put-away stuff when he needs it.

Unnecessary forms of excitement!

But it was a win!
